Just like hockey is here in Montreal in many places around the world soccer is a religion. North American and Montreal are catching up slowly in becoming fervent fans of the sport. Pitchfest is the brainchild of a few soccer enthusiasts here in Montreal who want to give the beautiful game some time in the spotlight.
The festival includes several different mediums including film, music, fashion and art/photography. Films about women playing soccer in Senegal, Reggae icon Bob Marley’s life and love of soccer, the story of the New York Cosmos, and soccer rebels like Socrates, Drogba and Mekloufi should be very interesting. The Art of Sport examines our fascination with club posters/banners and has on exhibit some rare prints of them. With this kind of variety it will allow huge fans and newcomers alike to find something that interests them.
